Optional seating. Whether it is styled in the form of a box or a chair on short legs an ottoman is upholstered and can be used as a seat. Perhaps not as comfortable as an armchair but sufficient as an emergency or alternative seating option in your home during parties or when a crowd of friends descend upon you. It can be stored away under a table and pulled out when needed - or rolled out if your ottoman is fitted with casters.

Kids love ottomans - and vice versa. Ottomans are child friendly - if a small child falls off an ottoman he or she is unlikely to come to any harm. They can be upholstered in child-friendly fabrics and can offer them a playing surface when they are sitting on the floor. They can be used to sit in front of the TV with a games controller and used as a hurdle in the hall for racing or as a horse when riding!
